2nd Hand Golf Clubs are a Good Investment when Buying Golf Clubs

By GolfPitStop Pty Ltd Subscribe to RSS | February 29th 2012 | Views:

Golf enthusiasts may not always be able to afford new brand name golf clubs, which can soar into the thousands for a complete set. Fortunately, there are many 2nd hand golf clubs available to enthusiasts who are buying golf clubs. Secondhand golf clubs are easily found online through resellers or golfers who are trading in their old set for a new one.

While 2nd hand golf clubs are a good option for those on a budget, they are also an excellent choice for new golfers who are uncertain if they will stick with the game. When buying golf clubs that are used, there are several things you should check, such as the club heads, shafts, grips, and set consistency.

When checking club heads on secondhand golf clubs, you want to look for face wear. Clubs that have been extensively used will have a shiny worn spot from ball strikes, which means the club face won’t hold the ball as well. You also want to make sure that the grooves on 2nd hand golf clubs still have plenty of life left in them. Secondhand golf clubs with defects or damage that affects the performance should be completely avoided.

When buying golf clubs, the shaft is also important to check. Bent shafts or indentations on 2nd hand golf clubs should also be avoided and indicate weakness. For steel shafts in secondhand golf clubs, look down the shaft to make sure it isn’t bent. It’s important to make sure you know exactly what secondhand golf clubs you’re buying. If any doubt check the sellers return and warranty policies.

Grips are another important consideration when buying golf clubs. Grips in 2nd hand golf clubs may have some type of wear. To re-grip a set can cost up considerable amounts. This adds up if you are purchasing a whole set of secondhand golf clubs with unusable grips.

You should also check set consistency when buying golf clubs. This is as simple as lining up the clubs and comparing them to each other. You want to check that these 2nd hand golf clubs are all from the original set, as there are different shaft types from one brand to another. An unpredictable mix and match of clubs will hurt your game.

It is a good idea to do some price comparisons between second hand golf clubs and the price of new clubs. You might be surprised to find that the savings on the used set is quite considerable when comparing to brand new golf clubs, even if the set is only a few years old or discontinued production.

If you are buying golf clubs, you won’t be able to fully tell how well they perform without taking a few swings. Some retail shops will let you demo the clubs or have a trial period in which you can return the clubs if they don’t work out. With a little research and testing, secondhand golf clubs are certainly a viable option for all golfers.
